FaithLeHane16,
you said what you is doing today but the thread is, "how was your day", indicating you is meant to say what you was doing yesterday.
Sorry but I am not trying to be awkward, I thought I was doing quite a good job of being awkward.
Next time you say you was laying about on doing nothing can you at least describe what you was laying on, I'm not trying to be awkward, I was. Which won't bother you if today is like yesterday when you had nothing to do..

@Last Watcher Do you really want him to answer that question Hoppy?
Most defiantly!

I'll probably be on and off for the day @FaithLehane16. The melodrama of yesterday is a monthly precurser for the migraine. I feel much better emotionally, now the skull cracking pain has hit. Lol. Shopping these days is a bit like falling off a horse, hurts the first day,but doesnt really hit ya til the 3rd day ;)

Whats on your menu tonight? I had peaches for breaky. Now playing a game of "avoid the sunlight".

Yum! I love sloppy joes! But I have mine with kangaroo meat. I havent had beef/mince for ages. What is red robin? Do they do food stamps too? Some days its such a relief just to buy ready made meals.

I might go for fish and salad today. With lots of nutty snacks and fruit in between. My only job to do today is clean the rabbits pen, and Anyabun is passed out asleep so peacefully that I dont want to do that yet.

Gotta go check on Cas the chook, but dont have high hopes unfortunately.

Oh my gosh, the sunset was beautiful tonight! I did not realise how much I needed to get into the garden until I did. It was absolute bird bliss outside with an amazing pink and yellow sky. I spent so long out there I missed the start of Im a Celeb! At least that give me something to do tomorrow lol. Everything will be shut tomorrow for the holiday. NO chance of me driving out of town on a long weekend.

It all looks so much neater with a hair cut. I trimmed some hedges, and even though it wasn't a perfect full hearted job (between watching the galahs play), it still looks so much nicer. Opening my bedroom window when I got back inside made me smile, cos it looked so much better out the front yard. I broke my sharp pair of hedge trimmers a few weeks ago so was using the old blunt pair, it did fine on the front but it didn't really work on the side wattle thing. I will have to get some more good ones next city trip.

I finally finished the chook run! Again, not a perfect job, there is only so much fiddly work I can do with a migraine, but the lot is fenced in and I guess I will find out tomorrow if they have slipped under the wire somewhere. I noticed, it is MUCH more enjoyable to work with a throbbing head than it is with out-of-control anxiety and stress. Pain, I can manage, panic, I can not! I am glad that bit has passed and I am actually thankful for the throbbing in my head over the irrational worry before it blows up to my brain. I get so scared of pain, but now I realise it is easier than emotional issues to deal with by far! I have so many theories on migraines now. Had some good meditation last night in my lack of sleep and watched some amazing connections form in my head.

Cas the chook is still not well. I wonder now if she got dehydrated in the heat and stressed in the recent weather, because if she was egg bound she should be dead by now. She looked a bit better around lunch time, and tonight did not want a bar of me, squarked at me and ruffled her feathers. I let her be for the night in her box with water and seed. I hope she survives, she is the most annoying chook, but the cutest. The others have always picked on her, so she is a mummies girl. Wouldn't have known it tonight with how mad she was at me! Its a good sign shes got some fight back, but its up to her now to recover.

I love summer nights now harvest is done, it is SO peaceful. I opened the whole house up for that country fresh air and blasted the fan on. The rabbits are not sure about having the fan on, fluff flies everywhere, Anyabun is currently trying to style her hair with it blowing in the fan and she does not look impressed haha. But it will do a bit of the grooming work for me ;)

Did a few sketches today, inspired by @Foxy, two of Cas the chook, fully recovered :D

How was the weekend for the rest of you lot?

Harvest is done already? You may have time to get in a bumper crop so you have twice as much to eat or trade for whatever someone else has grown.

Not my harvest, the big farms harvest. I am on a truck route. Now all of the farms harvest is done, so are the trucks! The air is clean and clear again. I only have mandarins and limes from my tree just now. I had so many spare I dropped another bag to food relief on friday. I am not a big fan of mandarins, and a bit sick of them now haha. I am planning to go round the neighbours this week cos this Jump Off show I am watching is making me itch for a ride, or at least horsey chat, and most in town have been involved in racing or polo. Maybe I can swap mandarins for horse rides lol.

I lost a lot of apples and pears in the wind storm, and all of what I had growing except carrots and one tomato plant, which currently has two flowers on. The watermelon got diseased but its sorta still growing, it might pick up once I move it. Not nearly as much this year as I had growing last year in regards to veg. We had a late frost and I lost all of my seedlings then too.

I cut my hair on friday.

Well... Not that literal, not I cut it. I went to a hair salong and they cut it, but it's a bit shorter than I thought it would be. I wanted it to be a bit longer than my shoulders...
But I like it, because it actually looks kinda like that:

OOOPS! I was supposed to go to a breakfast BBQ this morning, and I completely forgot. Instead I gave a chicken a massage and an espon salt bath and tried to water the garden. I feel bad cos I did actually want to go.

I figured out why watering the garden takes it out of me so much, besides the obvious distress of pouring that much chemically treated water into the dirt, I look down the whole time. I don't hold my own head up, and it puts my neck out cos I had to bend so often to move the old monster hose. I actually injure myself every single time I water, and being so hot, I have to water at least 3 times a week. This isn't good. I cant imagine the damage to my neck now after 2 years of that. I hope I don't survive when it does inevitably collapse. The new hoses made it much easier but have a lower rate of flow. I am starting to hate the garden, it is too small for a horse and too big to just enjoy. If that stupid gardener hadn't cut back the one tree providing shade for the whole middle of the yard, I would have a shade tree 3 times the size and not have to water as much. I am really frustrated.

Everything is trashed after the wild weather we had. I lost everything I had been working on the last few months, not for the first time. Its useless asking for help from my family for anything like this cos when I say "I need this" they say "No you need that" and give me things that are of absolutely no use or assistance to me, and then scream at me for not being grateful. Like when I asked for help with doing retic for the trees, we got the orchid done which was actually the only part I didn't need help with, the hose reached them fine and they were designed as flood beds, not for sprinklers. Its such a waste of everyones time when no one actually hears what I am trying to communicate. I don't have the cash to do proper retic for the whole lot, but I am capable of doing the work if I had supplies. The gardening was supposed to be included with the rent, but once I fired the gardener for cutting down the tree, that right was lost and the rent stayed the same. It is so, so expensive to upkeep this place and not nearly as rewarding as horses.

I wish I had moved to the granny flat with the crazy lady down the road. My horse would have been allowed to come with me, and the rent was cheaper. That was my plan until I got trapped here. A smaller house suits me much better, this house is way too big to keep clean and the garden is just a money suck, when I don't have money to be sucked! I understand why most in town now wouldn't be too fussed if a fire wiped the lot out. We'd all get a better quality of life on the insurance money. I do love the cottage, a lot, but it is too big for one person and the garden is a dying wasteland in my care. I miss my horses so much and have no idea how to keep fit and healthy without them holding my routine. I tried really hard to compensate with the buns, but they don't need near on as much care, and adding to the pet brood doesn't fill the hole horses left.

Truthfully, if I was a billionaire, I would stay in the area (its perfect for horses), heck, I'd stay on this property with a few improvements. I have room for a lap pool... but its just such a struggle right now with such limitations, not just financially but socially as well. There is a big camp draft down the road, and I don't want to go in case seeing horses makes me cry, and crying in public is what got me into this isolated mess in the first place.
I used to water my garden everyday. It's very relaxing. Ten years ago, my sister stayed here briefly while I was travelling...and she cut down the ONE tree in the yard. I was so pissed! She said she cut it down because there were spiders in them. Idiot. 😒

I water every now and then these days. I started to avoid it after some of the neighbours began hanging around near my back gate. Thankfully, they don't do it as much these days. They've finally realised that if they're out there for more than 30 minutes, they'll have to endure the dreaded death metal concert. 😂 Its pretty funny. Training humans is fun!

I miss the tree that was in my yard. I don't understand how ANYONE could have a beautiful tree chopped down because of a few spiders. That's retarded.

Yeah, especially in hot places, people dont realise how much they bring the temp down. Not just for us but all the insects and birds too.

A fair few of my trees are suffering after the storms, I hope I can save them. Given up on the veg stuff again for now, we have so much of summer to go yet, its tough enough to keep established things alive.

Can I ask here - Why do people keep giving me things?!?!? I get so much stuff thrown into my lap and dont know why, I could live without all of it. I got given a book on loan late last year. Im half deaf half the time and misheard who the book belonged to. I returned it to the wrong person and now have go out later and trek around town to hunt it down. I hope I can find it. I should just say no cos I cant keep track of these things, but that seems rude too. There is lots of lending and borrowing in small towns, and people seem to give me their most cherished posessions without even knowing me. I gotta build that NO wall back and start rejecting what is offered, my brain cant keep up! I've still got someones injecting kit for MS as she gave it to me for the blood clot meds (when I didnt need it) and another persons "little book of stress" which their late mother gave them and now shes moved Idk where... I am a terrible person, NEVER loan me things! Maybe I could wear a sign.

Sometimes life sucks indeed. Wake up Saturday thinking it's Friday, wake up Sunday thinking it's Monday, wake up Monday thinking it's Saturday. What the hell.

Ugh. I gotta lay off the life thing. Recovery takes too long. Socially exhausted.

I started my day with a weird dream, I'm going out tonight and need to buy a birthday card, apparently this was on my mine last night, as in my dream I finished work and was going to get a card on my way to the Italian place we're going to tonight, but for some reason I ended up at the swimming pool, well I had an hour before I needed to meet everyone so I did a bit of swimming, next thing I know I'm going into another pool and they had some big chalkboards advertising things at work! Also the clock there was telling me that it was near 7pm and that's when I needed to meet everyone. The dream ended before I got out the pool so no idea if I made it on time, and I didn't get the card!

I got woke up by my neighbours, as usual, so using my time wisely I decided to Flashdance my way around my house while listening to Devo. Hey everyone's awake, I may as well try exercising. Man, I must have been fit in my clubbing days, dancing takes it out of me now.

I felt sick today. Not just from what was consumed last night, but the stigma I experienced while socialising. The more I get to know some people in my town, the less I like them.

I have been ruminating over their little quips of "oh hun your're not capable of that" when I expressed desires and off hand comments devaluing me while simultainiously begging me to stay for another drink... why I stayed out so late, i do not know. I regret it. And the bunnies were mad at me today.

I think I was pushing myself to socialise as all of the rural mental health information says isolation is bad. I dont want to be bad. But the more I get involved, the more anxious I become. I felt gross all day and am in bed now feeling really bad about dancing. I am not one to sit on my arse even in social settings. I really regret going out and know I would not have drunk or smoked if i had not been feeling so incredibly anxious in the company of those people. I initially started drinking yesterday cos I missplaced that book, a book belonging to the owners recently deceased husband. I tracked it down but felt so awful. It is much easier and less stressful to stay uninvolved with humans. Internet socialisation is far more comfortable and I am not as confronted when people offer me things or judge my limitations. I hope I can sleep soon, I dont like feeling like this.

Spent the day at my mom's, with my sister, brother-in-law, and niece. Also finally got around to shaving the sides of my head, so now you can clearly see the many scalp sores I have from, idk, dry skin? I gotta learn to stop scratching!
